Opening Glass Walls: Anatomy of a Million Dollar Listing
By NanaWall Systems, July 14, 2021
What makes a million dollar listing and how can opening glass walls contribute to the property’s overall value? As you browse through listings on Zillow or Realtor.com you’ll begin to easily decipher the highly coveted features that make a million dollar home. Whether you are looking to sell, purchase, or simply upgrade your current property, getting the most bang for your buck and maximizing ROI is a benefit for both homeowners and real estate agents—from luxury brand tags and high-end design aesthetics to attractive locations and accompanying lifestyles. For realtors, these key marketing features make for attractive listing statements and speedy sales. Let’s take a look at some of the characteristics that make a million dollar listing so appealing.
Increasing Home Value with NanaWall Opening Glass Walls
Location, location, location! If there is one thing that plays a significant role in determining the price of a home is its proximity to an affluent neighborhood, shopping centers, schools, and extravagant views of city skylines and natural landscapes. From a penthouse atop New York City’s skyline to a secluded dwelling on a mountaintop, residential glass walls enhance views with barely-there frames—or no frames at all—to truly make the most out of location. For realtors, showcasing an open house with a large expansive opening could also help sell a nicely manicured backyard or pool area.

Increased Usable Living Space
When we think of high-end listings, we often picture luxurious mansions with massive pools, extensive gardens, and more space than we could ever need, but that is not always the case. A significantly smaller property can fall under the million dollar tag by extending a home’s usable living space to the outdoors, especially in large cities where backyard space is scarce. Whether it be in the form of a sunroom, patio, or deck, NanaWall moveable residential glass walls seamlessly transition interiors into outdoor areas, increasing livable square footage, and presenting a key selling feature for real estate agents. When comparing to other generic glass walls, using the NanaWall brand prestige to differentiate a listing from others in the area can guarantee a sale by advocating for durable and long-lasting home features.

The Indoor/Outdoor Connection
One selling point that all million dollar listings have in common: lifestyle. Pricier houses tend to employ features that elevate the at-home experience attributing to a more lavish style of living. In today’s market, the indoor/outdoor lifestyle has significantly influenced the way homes are built and how they connect to the outdoors. Expansive fenestration, such as moveable residential glass walls, has become an essential element in maximizing the outdoors by increasing sightlines and the ability to seamlessly connect to the open air. From attractive window/door combinations to curved walls and open corners, NanaWall opening glass walls can be customized to any unique home design challenge. The more attractive features the home presents, the higher the asking prices and sales. Imagine all the key selling points you can boast about with just one NanaWall system!

Innovative Ways to Conserve Energy
The eco-friendly movement has influenced everyday decisions, including what we look for in a home. More and more, we are seeing sustainable and energy-efficient features like solar panels and improved ways to light and ventilate our homes, which can significantly increase overall value. These elements can make a home more appealing due to increased demand and the fact that people are becoming more environmentally conscious. As an investment and luxury feature, energy-efficient opening glass walls in extreme climates can considerably decrease energy usage by keeping temperatures at bay as well as comfortable interiors year-round. The selling point: investing in a million dollar home with high-end, durable features like NanaWall residential glass walls will lead to savings on energy bills in the long run.
